    I read his story in USA today. Glad to see him getting the honor he deserves. I understand he is in private business now. DO you recall what the driver of his Humvee got-hopefully at least a Cross or a Silver star. both showed extraordinary bravery. The Marine apparently whacked 8 of the jihadists as well even though he couldn't save the team

    The linked article states that the driver got the Navy Cross. Brave men.
